Unemployed graduates in East ignored in employment opportunity

[TamilNet, Friday, 13 January 2012, 06:19 GMT]
Unemployed Graduates and Diploma Holders Association in the Eastern Province has in a memorandum to the Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapakse accused the Colombo government that they are being deceived after promising employment for 10,000 in 2010 and under the guise of Development Officers Project in 2011. The deprivation of employment opportunities and discrimination shown in providing such opportunities has fuelled the conflict in the past. Such discriminations should not be allowed in the province, said Mr. Hussein Mubarak, the general secretary of the UGDHA in his memorandum to the SL government.

Hundreds of unemployed graduates are over 45 years of age and majority of them are affected by natural disasters. Both the ruling and opposition political parties had promised employment opportunities are currently not seen at the scene, the memorandum states.

The UGDHA general secretary has pointed out in his memorandum that the unemployed graduates who have undergone untold sufferings due to the conflict and natural calamity are finding difficult for their survival without proper livelihood activities.

In the last year unemployed graduates had appeared at two interviews held for the recruitment but there has been no response from the concerned authorities.

They should be given priority when providing fresh appointment in the future, said Mr. Hussein Mubarak in his memorandum with copies to the Provincial Governor, Provincial Chief Minister, Provincial Education Ministry Secretary and Line Education Ministry Secretary.
